This course will help improve your English writing skills through conversation, reading and writing. We will explore different types of writing, like argumentative, descriptive, narrative. It will be helpful to students and professionals wanting to interact with English on many different levels.
A wise man called Dumbledore once said: "Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic." But in order to use this source effectively and, of course, magically, we need training.
I'm a very easy-going, creative and curious person. I believe in interactive learning, active participation and hard work. Each student brings something new, and so I make sure to tailor the program accordingly.
This English Writing program will allow students to explore different types of writing, including argumentative, descriptive, academic and narrative. It is meant to improve writing through practice, but also through reading and conversation. As such, it will be very participatory and interactive.
Together, we will seek to improve your vocabulary, grammar, syntax and punctuation. This course is for those who already have a basic and quite solid knowledge of English.
